Where to Find a Book or Journal

Use information from its MnPALS Plus record to find a print book, DVD, CD, or journal.

On the search results screen, books that are not checked out will be indicated as Available. If you click on a title to view the detailed record for an item, books that are available to be checked out will say On Shelf in the Due Date column. If the item is checked out by someone else, the Due Date column will show the date that the item is due to be returned to the library.
